Some days I make games out of my photography. To avoid taking the same photos over and over again, I challenge myself to look for letters of the alphabet, a particular color or item…and faces. Today a face grabbed my attention…and got me thinking about today’s poem.
Take a look around
grinning up from a patch of grass
Look at the sliding door
and find a face staring back
The cliff suddenly comes to life
watching you walk along the shore
look over the pier, the surfers, the seagulls
They’re all around
reflecting our expressions
mirroring our emotions
Today’s student poem is by Siena…a poem of apology inspired by William Carlos Williams.
I’m sorry for leaving the gate open and letting you escape to our neighbor’s house
I was so excited to go
But l just got carried away
Forgive me, l thought l lost you
We found you
What kind of poem will you play around with today?
